Interprofessional Rehabilitation: a Person-Centred Approach is a concise and readable introduction to the principles and practice of a person-centred interprofessional approach to rehabilitation, based upon a firm scientific evidence base.

Written by a multi-contributor team of specialists in physiotherapy, occupational therapy, nursing, psychology and rehabilitation medicine, this text draws together common themes that cut across the different professional groups and the spectrum of health conditions requiring rehabilitation, and sets out a model of practice that is tailored to the specific needs of the client. Showing interprofessionalism at work in a range of clinical contexts, the book argues that effective rehabilitation is best conducted by well-integrated teams of specialists working in an interdisciplinary way, with the client or patient actively involved in all stages of the process.

This book will be essential reading for students preparing for practice in an increasingly interprofessional environment, and will be of interest to any health care practitioner keen to understand how an integrated approach to rehabilitation can benefit their clients.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The key message of this book is that there is great value in person-centred rehabilitation. This book is well laid out, easy to read, and summarizes vast amounts of research and reference material. Use of case studies helps students and clinicians understand how to incorporate this integrated approach to benefit their clients. Controversies are also outlined that clearly support the need for additional research in this field. Overall, the book is considered a thought-provoking read and one that will benefit any clinician with an interest in interprofessional rehabilitation.” (Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, 29 October 2013)
